I went to go visit my Dad today. It’s been 9 days since his open heart surgery. I tried to ask him how he’s doing and he start’s talking about wishbones. That’s my Dad for you. He cracks me up.
I started videoblogging about a year ago. I made the first post on this new blog on November 15, 2004 and I posted my first video on the 22nd. It really took me about a month to distinguish filmmaking from videoblogging. Once that happened I totally fell in love with it. And, I think, out of just doing what I love every chance I can, I’ve had the most amazing year starting with Dylan becoming famous and then on to VloggerCon. I’ve met great people from all over the world. Ryanne and I created FreeVlog. Dave Toole & Markus Sandy have been mentors, friends, and amazing partners in NODE101. Luckily, Chuck Olsen sent me some links to the videoblogging group that Jay & Peter started. I can’t imagine any of this happening if they hadn’t had the foresight to do that. So, I’ll never again think of myself as unlucky. Thanks for that.
My Dad had a triple bypass today. Everything went as expected and he’s doing well. Thanks for all of your good thoughts.
